Meaningful Information consists of items arranged in Patterns. The arranged items can be anything — atoms, molecules, digits, letters, acorns, checkers, species of plants, books of law, or pencil dots. Nature’s Continuing Creation (NCC) creates Patterns of increasing complexity, organization, and even beauty over time.  Nature’s Continuing Creation will take place over time as long as there is an open flow-through of energy and a suitable environment of component parts (e.g., chemical elements, molecules).  For a further discussion, see my free Essay — Information Patterns: How Creating Works.
